What we recommend instead
Lucky Pence Verdict
The main improvement that we’d like to make to Lucky Pence is to add some popular card and table games plus live dealer tables as many other Dragonfish bingo brands offer them to their players.
Other than this, we feel that Lucky Pence will provide other bingo networks (such as Jumpman Gaming) with some extra competition, particularly when it comes to its generous welcome package.
Design & Usability
Lucky Pence Bingo has an energetic feel to it. The landing page features fireworks bursting out of the brand logo at the top, and the welcome offer off “Add £5, Play With £75” is straight underneath it.
The colour scheme is unusual and eye-catching with blues, oranges, and purples bursting out of the screen.
Although you can’t dig around much without signing up for an account, the Lucky Pence Bingo homepage lets you know that players can look forward to daily treats, no withdrawal fees, “mega bonuses and perks”, and Slingo games.
There are two “Join Now” buttons that once clicked take you to the registration page.
Software & Gameplay
The Dragonfish software platform which is designed by 888 Limited is used to power Lucky Pence. It allows you to zip between the different pages and games, play side games while you’re in the bingo rooms, top-up your account and cash-out, and check your current loyalty level.
Safety & Security
Lucky Pence Bingo is regulated and licensed by the UK Gambling Commission, as well as the Government of Gibraltar. The independent body, eCOGRA, has also deemed that the site is safe and fair for players to use.
The RNG software that generates the outcome of all the games has been signed off by a third party, and SSL encryption is in place to keep your data and banking details private.
Payments & Withdrawals
There’s not a huge array of banking methods to choose from at this Dragonfish bingo site, but at least the most popular ones are offered. For example, you can pay using a debit or credit card, Paypal or Paysafecard.
The withdrawal times are the same as at other Dragonfish bingo brands, and it takes 48 hours for your withdrawal to change from pending to approved.
On the Contact page, you’ll find details of the ways in which you can get in touch with the customer service team. There’s a freephone number for UK players as well as a number for non-UK residents and a VIP hotline. In addition, there’s an email address and a Live Help room, the latter of which is accessed through the bingo lobby.
Support is not available 24/7, but the opening hours are still pretty decent (N.B., Mondays 8 AM until midnight; Tuesdays 8 AM until 1 AM; Wednesdays 8 AM until midnight; Thursdays 8 AM until 1 AM; Fridays 8 AM until 10 PM; Sundays 8 AM until 5 PM). However, only a voicemail service is available on Saturdays.
Bonuses & Promotions
The majority of bingo bonuses at Lucky Pence have 4x wagering requirements associated with them, and that’s pretty standard for a Dragonfish bingo site.
For example, for just £5, you get £70 worth of bingo tickets and 5 free spins which come with zero wagering requirements.
The promotions are typically tailored to each player depending on how much they play and how much they spend at the site. If you have any bonus offers, you’ll find them listed under Games Vouchers and Bingo Vouchers in the lobby. At the time of writing, roomies have the chance to win a pub lunch when making a deposit of £20 or more using a special promo code.

Only a handful of Dragonfish bingo brands offer mobile bingo apps as the software is fully optimised for mobile devices. This means that you can play using your device’s web browser, and you also have the option to save the site to your phone’s home-screen for easy access.
Variety & Originality
The games lobby lets you browse by Bingo or Slots.
The Bingo tab includes holiday specials, invitation-only rooms, free rooms, and mega jackpots. Each room has a thumbnail which shows live information about how much money is up for grabs, how long until the next game begins, how many players are in the room, how much the tickets cost, and the bingo variant available such as 75-ball.
Lucky Pence shares a number of rooms (called Linked and Loaded) with its sister sites, and each one boasts a progressive jackpot.
As well as having an impressive list of popular slots such as Dead or Alive, Cleopatra, and Fluffy Favourites, Lucky Pence offers you penny slots, jackpot slots, Slingo games, and instant wins. Unfortunately, there are no casino games or live dealer games such as blackjack and roulette.
Loyalty & Rewards
Every member of Lucky Pence has the chance to earn loyalty points by taking part in promotions, chat games, and by buying bingo tickets. You can redeem your points for bingo bonus funds through your account page, and 10,000 points are worth £1 of bonus money.
The site’s VIP scheme is by invitation only, and it’s hard to find out much about what perks are available part from weekly cashback. Ruby VIPs get 5% up to £50, Sapphire VIPs gain 7% up to £75, Emerald VIPs receive 10% up to £125, and Diamond VIPs get 15% up to £200.
